Inspired by a magazine photo

I was reading the current Yankee magazine issue and a photo from one of the articles inspired me to make a card; I love the vintage look, of course, the colors, the hobby horse and the painted floor and walls:



I used the new OWH Sketch 249 and added the ribbon for the Cards In Envy "Anything Goes: Add a Bow" challenge.  I found the old-fashioned rocking horse digi at an Etsy shop called CuteAsAButtonDigis:

 
I'm definitely going to save this magazine photo for further ideas!! Thanks for stopping by.

You came up with a great card from this inspiration photo. I like that you used tickets on the side and that sentiment is perfect. My Dad's first job was running the Carousel at Rocky Point in Warwick RI when he was 14 years old. Have a crafty day.
